Re: Observations from Saints vs. Rams

Deacon Benjamin Watson still got it.

HUGE catches yesterday.

Side note - DOME crowd. Very smart in being quiet to allow Brees to call signals & then turn it on when Goff was under center.

DOME SWEET DOME .

The announcers made such a big deal about how quiet the crowd was when we had the ball, and I'm thinking, "well, duh", but I guess our fans are pretty football savvy relative to lots of others. We kinda rock.

Is he caustic in the locker room? Not that anyone has mentioned.
Is the cell phone penalty any different than Grahams dunk penalties? Nope
If Joe Horn had Twitter when he was a player would Thomas be any different? No
Does he whine or throw tantrums like Bryant? No
Is he trying to be bigger than the team? Not that I know of.

Most importantly, has any of the above eroded his performance? Not that I know of.

He has a chip on his shoulder and that makes a lot of people play harder.
I was thinking along the same lines as Dizzle but you made some good points. He's definitely not a cancer in the locker room.

Speaking of cancers, I didn't like Brandin Cooks when he was a Saint, and I like him even less now. The guy has Mighty Mouse syndrome. Not as good as he thinks he is.

Apparently KC knew exactly what they were doing when they traded him.

Seems like @cantguardmike is having that effect on quite a few CBs this year. First he turned Josh Norman into a snowflake. Now he turns Marcus Peters into toast. The guy is a wizard.

Maybe that's why he changed agents; so he could upgrade/afford new phone.

Exactly. He's a big part of that run game.
